According to the Government of Canada Radon exposure is one health risk that is easily preventable. Plan protect your family and improve your long term health. Plan to take action on radon.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. More than 3000 people die from radon-induced lung cancer every year. All homes have some level of radon. The question is how much and the only way to know is to test.
You can purchase a radon test kit or contact a certified professional to help you check the levels in your home. We recommend that any home with a radon level above 200 Bq/m3 should take action to reduce their levels.
